Since launching in 2015, Apple Music has offered a three-month free trial to first-time subscribers, but the length of the trial period has now been reduced from three months to one month.
New subscribers can get 6 months of Apple Music for free with the purchase of an eligible device:
• AirPods Pro
• AirPods (2nd generation)
• AirPods (3rd generation)
• AirPods Max
• Beats Studio Buds
• Powerbeats Pro
• Beats Solo Pro
• Beats Fit Pro
• HomePod Mini
Not also that the Apple Music Student Plan ($.99/mo.) comes with Apple TV+ for free.

How come you can get 6 months free with the purchase of a new HomePod ?? As far as I’m aware they’re no longer available
Some non-Apple retailers may still have stock that is “new” 😉
Tried the offer awhile ago and A-Music mucked up my entire legacy (purchased) library. Spent 3+ hrs with Apple Support (3 of 4 reps were quite worthless) to get it straighten out.
You can call me gun-shy related to ANYTHING having to do with A-Music. Even w/o the trial, the A-Music encroachment in listening to my own music and podcasts is real and frustrating. Apple, please back off. Of course you want to let me know “you are there,” but beyond that, HALT, please.
Another way to get extended 6-month free trial of Music (for new subs) is to buy an Apple Gift Card (email delivery) from Best Buy, for as low as $15. Includes similar offers for News and TV+.
